Imitation, as the saying goes, is the sincerest form of flattery. So should Sony therefore be flattered that Microsoft is looking into the potential of an EyeToy-like device for Xbox 2? Probably.
News of camera action on Microsoft's next console has come via a recent Bloomberg News interview conducted with Microsoft Vice President and XNA Chief Architect, J Allard.

According to reports, Allard spoke to Bloomberg News of a camera situated on top of television sets that would allow players to control games with body movement, the device rivalling Sony's EyeToy.

Allard admitted that Microsoft is "trying to take some learnings from what our competition has done with cameras that let players control games," also saying that: "We've got a couple of those answers. We're going to turn that into a couple of solutions."

Microsoft is widely expected to unveil Xbox 2 at E3 in May so, should that occur, we'll no doubt learn more about these "couple of solutions" then.
